morning mother, what I miss about franco, he selling babies or something?

"When he came out of the Paterno house, Harris said he doesn???t understand why Paterno is being portrayed the way he is, that he did what he should have done in the case." Was that a good thing to say?

I am sure he is not the only one in this country who may feel that way. I am not one of them, but until the whole story unfolds, I will reserve any further judgement for a later day. The Paterno name carries a lot of weight, so the media is gonna have it's way his name. (unfortunate) all the facts are not in yet, in as far as the public is concerned.

That's true but considering he has hired a high powered defense attorney suggests he is in for a rocky road.

the one story i read was that franco worked for a casino-co. [as a rep./spokesperson] and they gave him a pink-slip when he publicly ''defended'' jo-pa .

Wouldn't doubt that for a minute if it happened - bad stituation to be associated with. I'm sorry for those who think "the world" is being hard on Paterno but he was "Da Man" at Penn St. and it seemed nothing happened on that campus without his say-so. Okay so he reported the "incident" up the chain of command; first you don't do that unless you believe it's true (why ruin a man without cause right?), second you follow up ASAP so see what's going on because you are Da Man.

He also sold his house for a dollar to his wife...which implies he is trying to protect his assets,

That won't stand up in court. It will be considered a fraudulent conveyance.

"A conveyance by one spouse to the other based upon a fictitious or nominal consideration is generally treated as fraudulent if it is made to defeat the spouse's creditor's claims. However, if one spouse pays the other the market value of the property, the transfer is valid and will not be set aside as a fraudulent conveyance."

...they have been preparing for this scandal...

That's a sad statement in itself. That "they" would go this far to protect Scumdumpster is an injustice on its' own.
